Class ConfigObject

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    GroovyObject, Writable, Cloneable, Map

    public class ConfigObject
    extends GroovyObjectSupport
    implements Writable, Map, Cloneable
    A ConfigObject at a simple level is a Map that creates configuration entries (other ConfigObjects) when referencing them. This means that navigating to will not return null but nested ConfigObjects which are of course empty maps The Groovy truth can be used to check for the existence of "real" entries.

      • flatten

        public Map flatten()
        A ConfigObject is a tree structure consisting of nested maps. This flattens the maps into a single level structure like a properties file

        public Map merge​(ConfigObject other)
        Merges the given map with this ConfigObject overriding any matching configuration entries in this ConfigObject
        other - The ConfigObject to merge with
        The result of the merge
      • toProperties

        public Properties toProperties()
        Converts this ConfigObject into a the java.util.Properties format, flattening the tree structure beforehand

        public Properties toProperties​(String prefix)
        Converts this ConfigObject ino the java.util.Properties format, flatten the tree and prefixing all entries with the given prefix
        prefix - The prefix to append before property entries
        A java.util.Properties instance

        public ConfigObject clone()
        Returns a shallow copy of this ConfigObject, keys and configuration entries are not cloned.
        clone in class Object
        a shallow copy of this ConfigObject
      • isSet

        public Boolean isSet​(String option)
        Checks if a config option is set. Example usage:
         def config = new ConfigSlurper().parse("foo { password='' }")
         assert'username') == false
        The check works only for options one block below the current block. E.g. config.isSet('foo.password') will always return false.
        option - The name of the option
        true if the option is set false otherwise
